In the summer of 2010, long-time Kansas City resident, Tracey Russell picked up an issue of Edible Seattle on her summer vacation. “I immediately knew that we needed this magazine in our community.” Edible Kansas City was established and the first issue was printed the next spring.
A part of the nation-wide network Edible Communities, eKC is a locally owned and published magazine focusing on farmers, artisans, small businesses, and all who cultivate a sustainable food system in our metro area.
The publication has been a labor of love, sustained by the contributions of local writers who believe in the cause. While the community is scooping up the magazines, eKC is faced with production costs that exceed current revenue.
The magazine’s first issue came out last summer.
